Abstract: When COVID-19 appeared in the beginning of 2020, many project managers were laid off, furloughed, or forced to work remotely. Some of them had never worked from home before, so this was all brand new to them, and they had to find the correct tools to ensure their success. What project managers need to keep in mind today is that the issues that arise when working remotely do not differ that much from those that happen in the face-to-face environment.

The key to success is to get as close as possible to face-to-face interaction, and use innovative ways to examine the entire project management process, address the issues, and find smarter, more innovative project management solutions for today and well into the future.

Tania Gray has worked in project management for a total of 10 years in the technology consumer industry, where she developed tablet and smartphone devices. She has 7 years of direct project management work experience in manufacturing, 4 of those years having managed project activities with multicultural and cross-functional teams on a daily basis. She has managed and delivered several extensive and complicated engineering technical projects. A great communicator, passionate, loves to learn new things, apply innovative technologies, and meet new people.

As a Biotech Director and Project Manager, Pavel Tsinberg has helmed new product development, initiated and executed multiple projects, and led employees through challenging times. Most recently, he leveraged 20+ years of experience in biotechnology and PMP knowledge to pioneer and launch a game-changing cancer screening device and blood collection tube.

Using his technical expertise to help shape main products, he invented and developed a liquid biopsy microfluidic device, blood collection tubes, and diagnostic genomic and proteomic microarrays. He led continuous improvement of the products, leading process, material, and product optimizations.

A strong communicator, Pavel has simplified complex biotechnical concepts and connected them to stakeholder goals, nurturing strong relationships with and generate buy-in from leaders, employees, and vendors.
